Synopsis

Dr. Press creates a super computer, which decides it must rule the world to run it properly. Press insists the computer be destroyed, but the government refuses to damage the expensive machine. Goliath produces tens of thousands of robot servants. It takes control of the town of Hometon, banning drinking and smoking, controlling sleep times, imposing a balanced diet, and deciding who marries for suitability. Finally, the government decides Goliath is dangerous, but it is too late. Mandrake goes into Hometon in a final effort to defeat Goliath. In the end, a child called David destroys the monster with a slingshot.
